The Brig Student Bar

The GSB student bar, The Brig, forms an integral part of the student campus life experience.


Over the years,  the brig has found itself in different parts of GSB buildings on the old campus in Rondebosch and at the Breakwater Campus at the V&A Waterfront. When the GSB moved to the Breakwater Campus, the bar was housed upstairs in one of the rooms but in 1997 it was moved to the old boxing ring close to the original Treadmill. 

Every year Brig Masters and Mistresses are nominated to run and organise student social events at the bar. In 2015 The Brig was refurbished and now has a stylish industrial aesthetic styling and design. 

Every first Thursday of every month alumni and students gather for drinks at The Brig to catch up and network. The GSB also often hosts events and class reunions at the bar.
